Description

The Farmer in 2019

Many people are aware of the growing global population, they know about the strain on natural resources posed by modern agriculture and they understand the demands of these two forces on farmers. To feed the people, “productivity must increase, but in ways which are environmentally safe, economically viable, and socially sustainable” (AgTech White Paper, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation 2014)

  • What are the modern farming solutions addressing these challenges?
  • How challenging is it to implement these solutions together with already existing farmers or new farmers?
  • What kind of support systems is necessary to build an effective agtech entrepreneurial ecosystem in the future?


Join our discussion featuring a panel of three: two AgTech startups providing modern solutions in agriculture technology and one of Berlin's urban farms that employs low-tech techniques for sustainable farming.

  • Stenon - employs sensors and AI to offer real-time soil analysis
  • dropnostix GmbH - producing "tic-tacs" for cows that monitor the animal's health
  • StadtFarm - an urban farm in Berlin using hydroponics and aquaponics


Let's meet, enjoy some mulled wine & Christmas cookies, and let's celebrate this Holiday Season with other lovers of food and agriculture.
